the widest gap. it is something we are being attentive to. african-american, latino, native american and samoan. and while the district overall trend was 10% growth, what you notice over a five-year trend is african-american growth has bested the district average of 13% improvement, latino at 10% equal to the district's growth, native american at 14%, and samoan at 11%. the next slide is similar, but in the content area of mathematics on the state test. again, 8.2% district overall growth trend, african-american comparison 13% growth over five years, latino 10%, native american 7, and samoan 11%. >> superintendent, i'm just wondering if there is anyway maybe later on to get the numbers of where the anglo and asian-american students are. >> okay. so, maybe in this next slide, we get to that point. so, this next slide is actually on the english language arts achievement gap. so, what's highlighted in this one are two line graphs, one for african-american/latino, and the top line graph actually represents the district average. and what i want to point out is, again, a different way to r
to break. they will talk a lot about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of a republican stronghold, and it is. increasingly, we have seen the ski area communities start to turn democratic. host: a lot of headlines and focus on early voting in this presidential contest. does colorado have it? guest: we do and we have mail in voting about two million people voted early absentee in the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to two 0.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind that colorado has about 2.8 million active voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado. host: on election day, how do people vote? guest: there are three ways, optical machines, scanning m
the latino achievement gaps and it was really alarming. very disappointing the statistics that we heard today. as miss johnson mentioned we're asking that the housing authority hearings finally be made public, because we need more transparency this and we're asking for a right to return to public housing. we wrote legislation about that, so we have been spending tons of time in the community. >> miss selby. >> i just wanted to say what i want for this district, i don't have the advantage of actually being in office now, but what i want for this district is a safe and thriving district and i want a strong voice for neighborhoods at city hall. i'm the only mother who is running and when i win, i will be the only mother at the board of supervisors. i am the small business person, had my own small business for the last ten years. believe me, i know what this city does and doesn't do for small business and it can definitely do more. finally i believe i'm the only president of a neighborhood and merchant organization up here and i have worked hard to turn around the lower haight from one where pe
. a latino person can help. a korean person can help. a gay person can help. everyone can help accomplish the unfinished agenda for everyone. i often talk about partnerships. we have to partner with our african-american community to get things done and that will be the only correct way to get things done. is that partnership. [applause] so when i make announcements, when the board of supervisors and we pass legislation, we're always going to do it with a commitment in our minds that there is a partnership with our african-american community to get things done in the city. whether i am talking about jobs, and we have a partner on jobs, whether i am talking about creating a housing trust fund, when i am talking about hope sf, anything that is of any innovation or anything that fulfills a historic promise that the city made to our african and american community. we have to partner with our youth and african-american parents and communities and african american owned businesses. all that has to be done together. i will commit to you -- [applause] this is not to me just a celebration. although
years plus and had latino and other community connections. we have heard about a so-called community process that was supposedly involved and what we find out is aside from the many problems that we have pointed out here previously the more we learn the more there are very questionable issues with regard to that process. the so-called mediator was found by a friend of the mediator and introduced to the supervisor who appointed her. she then turned around and appointed her friend to the so-called community process and it went downhill from there. thank you. >> thank you. any other members of the public wish to speak in general public comment? seeing none. public comment is closed. madam clerk can you move to the adoption calendar. >> the next items are considered without committee reference and enacted on a single call and if a member wants to sef veran item it can be separately. >> anybody want to sef veran item? >> roll call. >> (roll call). there are ten aye's. >> the resolutions are adopted. colleagues we have our 330 special order which i hope to start at 330 and other than

-american and latino students attending lois-performing schools is not identified. because of this astonishing numbers of failing students. two months ago coleman members presented at this committee and spoken for part of funds for in-school credit options for students failing a through g classes. as it stands approximately 20% of graduating classes of 2014 and 2015 are not on track to graduating, meaning they failed one or more a through g classes. 20%. this means one in five over incoming sophomores and juniors will not graduate. one in five students, these are future business owners, doctors, tech company entrepreneurs, future city commissioners and futer city supervisors and they will not be graduating. this is unacceptable in a world class city such as san francisco whose budget increased by $500 million this year alone. on tuesday board of education identified an additional $500,000, which includes $200,000 from dcyf for credit recovery options and we want to thank the board of education for this leadership. $500,000 is a step in the right direction but sadly not nearly enough in the face of the
uppick of black and latino students on campus. >> jennifer: i think it was a pretty engenius move to take the top 10% because you will get more diversity that way. 73 of the 90 friend of the court briefs that were filed in support of affirmative action were entities that would benefit from having a diverse, say, employee pool. tell us who some of those are. >> scholars, statisticians, scientists, military government officials, corporate officials, saying this affirmative action programs in general are good for us to train future corporate, military, or political or just general citizens in this country. it allows people to understand what it is like to work with people of different backgrounds, experiences, viewpoints, which sometimes comes through in different skin color, because what race you have ends up helping really how you see the world and how you interact with other people. and to be able to interact with people who see things differently is a huge plus. >> jennifer: in fact the military is one of the entities that filed a brief in support too, righ

-american, american indian and latino. california has experience with the impact of banning race from state university admissions decisions. in 1996 voters approved prop 209, which banned the practice. the supreme court decision will not affect that ban, but santa clara university law professor margaret russell says the court's decision could impact us in other ways. >> this will affect us in california in the sense that the supreme court, in deciding to take the care, has obviously signaled that it's willing to consider overturning the earlier decision that upheld the use of race. so no matter how it comes out, in terms of the vote, it's re-opened the debate. >> reporter: a debate becoming even more heated as university budgets shrink and the number of applicants grows. the u.s. supreme court is not expected to issue its decision until spring of next year. reporting live in san jose, marianne favro, "nbc bay area news." >>> we want to share some breaking news with you. it has to do with b.a.r.t. there's a problem on the line right now heading eastbound. there seems to be a train that's disabled insid
